Appearance – This brown was brown all right, about as perfect a brown as you could find. The head was nice and sported a colorful tan.

Smell – The malts were bready at the nose and heavily toasted. There was a little sugary sweetness in there as well.

Taste – The malts are thick at the taste. The yeast from the nose comes over big time as well, and the light maple flavor in the rear nicely rounds out the flavor profile.

Mouthfeel – This is a solid medium-bodied with some faint carbonation and a noticeable bitterness in the middle.

Drinkability – I haven’t had too many good PacNW Brown Ales, but this one was nice. I especially enjoyed the fact that they didn’t do a full court press with the hops.

Comments – I had the chance to enjoy this at the 2005 Fremont Oktoberfest, which exceeded expectations.

I had this beer on-tap at the Hillside in Seattle. It's just marketed as "Bob's Beer" now.

Appearance: medium brown with a moderate haze and a finger of creamy tan foam. Quite attractive.

Smell: lightly caramelly with a dash of toast. Not very strong but a decent and classic brown ale aroma.

Taste: lightly toasty and a bit nutty with a moderately sweet malt and a rather up-front bitterness. A solid brown.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: not a bad version of yeah style. Bitterness is a tad high but that's hardly the end of the world.
